  • My world shattered when at 12:18am on Friday the 21st Josh Shannon gave me the news that broke me into a thousand pieces…
    Jimmy you will forever be my “YIMMY”, my headache cause you’d never miss a moment to get the all time favorite I TOLD YOU SO in there….my protector, when I’d suffer panic attacks with my seizures so bad all you’d have to do is tell me to unlock the door I knew I was ok you’d hold me tightly till seizing would subside and I’d stop rocking crying and finally would fully peacefully sleep my personal chef that EVERY OTHER NIGHT you was like clockwork bringing me a plate of food even if I’ve just pulled food from my oven or a fork in my mouth currently eating you’d sit in the chair adjacent to me until I ate what you made too. Cause it never killed a woman to eat dinner twice just like it wouldn’t kill me to stay in “shape” (a shape of ROUND as youd laughingly add) … as well as like clockwork I could bank at 4:28am every morning Monday to Friday and occasionally weekends if you be working I’d receive this message from you, “U up need couple smokes take to work with me?” Or id get a invite to come keep you company while you make a 3am meatloaf and veggies and highlight my hair but I’d make you meet me at my door because I’m afraid of the dark and was scared to walk alone, (although I lived less then a football field away)
    I’ll always smile when mid day I’d get the random “HEY YOU HOOKERLIPS you got a licensed driver that can help me? Cause Dad let me use his truck today cuz I had to pull loader to do job injector went out and sitting on riverside drive..Do you know anyone that can drive my dad’s truck out of here there watching for me to leave ” and the next breath I’d get something like, ” I’ll tell you when I see you? downtime today give me a favor buy me a truck online F-250 Chevy 2500 I need to stay right around the $2,500″ … I loved I love you still, I always have and always will!! Just always thought we’d have more time together!!! Thank you for allowing me the privilege to be your friend!! You’ll forever be missed YIMMY!
